William Watson started out as an optician and camera maker in in 1837 and began making microsopes in 1876. The company quickly gained a strong reputation for the quality of its instruments. Much attention is paid to packaging with a view to ensuring that items reach buyers quickly and without damage. Most of the items I sell are antique, of high value and impossible to replace. Most items are wrapped in multiple layers of bubblewrap, before being placed in strong double-wall cardboard boxes with the void filled with a 100% recycled polystyrene loosefill.
I have tried alternatives to bubblewrap but none come close in terms of the level of protection they provide. They are not the cheapest, but do offer a professional, fast (normally next-day) service and have proper shelving in their vans, which many of their competitors do not. Please help me to minimise waste by reusing the packaging wherever possible, or finding someone that can.
